Performance Details - Measure for Measure
Nunn/Bjornson, Royal Shakespeare Company, September 1991
"Bounded by some convincing worn steps and backed by zig-zagging metal staircases, a set of tramlines crosses the stage, and in between the rails, since this is Vienna in 1900, stands Freud's couch. Thickly draped in Turkish rugs, this mute witness to a thousand troubled psyches is an apt image for a play that will trace a man's fateful decline from public virtue to private vice." Jeremy Kingston, Times 19.9.91
Opening Date: 18 September 1991
